Dysfunctional Family and Holiday Gatherings

Holidays + Family = Stress

We all wish that wasn’t true but most of the time the holidays plus family is a recipe for stress. How can we change that? What can we do to make the holidays less stressful and more enjoyable? That’s a question many people face every year.

I’m Nikki Leigh, a Love Coach and the host of Ready for Love Radio. In November 2017, I invited Dr LeslieBeth Wish and Kristy Heart, a Life Coach to join me on my radio show and we discussed these topics and more.

The book – Dysfunctional Family and Holiday Gatherings

After the show we decided to put our thoughts on paper and to share them in the pages of a book. We also invited several other coaches to join us. We’re also sharing a link to a replay of the show so you can hear everything we have to say on these topics.

Join Dr LeslieBeth Wish, Kristy Heart a Life and Business Coach, Raeeka Yaghmai a Dating and Relationship coach, Susan Ball a Women’s Freedom Coach and Self-Love Activist, Todd Creager a marriage and sex therapist and myself, a Love and Relationship Coach. We will each share our perspectives and our advise on a wide variety of questions about holidays, family, and how to deal with the ensuing stress.
